A minor is available only to students electing an OCM in lieu of a regular HMC major.
Biology: Biology 52 (required in Core), Biology 54, four additional biology courses, at least one of which must be accompanied by a lab.
Chemistry: A minor in chemistry shall consist of a coherent group of at least four courses beyond the required Core in two or more areas of chemistry, i.e. analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic and physical. The minor must include laboratory experiences in at least two different areas beyond general chemistry (Chemistry 21-22) and be approved by the minor advisor. (Chemistry 56 and Chemistry 58 together count as one course.)
Computer Science: Math 55, Computer Science 60 or Computer Science 42, Computer Science 140; one of the following: Computer Science 105, Computer Science 121, Computer Science 131, Computer Science 142; and any other upper division Computer Science course chosen with the consultation and approval of the minor advisor.
The Engineering Minor follows the same three-part model as the major. Students must complete seven engineering courses, as follows:
Engineering Sciences (2): One of E82, E83, E84, E85, or E106 and one follow-on course in the same discipline as the first; and
Engineering Systems (2): E59 (taken as part of the College’s Common Core); and E101 and Design and Professional Practice (3); One of E4 or E111; and E8 and E80.
Mathematics: The student will propose a program designed in consultation with his/her mathematics advisor. Proposals must be approved by the Department of Mathematics Curriculum Committee and should consist of any five upper-division Mathematics courses (to include Math 55) which form a coherent concentration or survey program. At least four must be HMC or HMC cooperative courses. Mathematics Clinic and Senior Thesis are normally excluded.
Physics: Physics 52, Quantum Physics (three units), and at least nine additional units of physics or astronomy chosen with the help of a physics advisor.
